The Week contest
This week’s question: Twenty-three members of an extended family were kicked off a cruise in the South Pacific last week after they allegedly spent days insulting, harassing, and drunkenly brawling with other passengers. If Hollywood were to make a movie about this cruise from hell, what title could it give the film?
Last week’s contest: A couple from Colorado with little sailing experience quit their jobs and spent all their savings on a 28-foot sailboat for a trip around the world, only to sink the vessel within sight of land shortly after leaving Florida. If the couple were to write a memoir about their exceptionally short ocean adventure, what title could they give the book?
THE WINNER: “20,000 Dollars Under the Sea” Angela Trodello, Chandler, Ariz.
SECOND PLACE: “Reef Encounter” James Smith, New York City
THIRD PLACE: “Born to Run Aground” Tim Mistele, Coral Gables, Fla.
